Water, sewer rates to remain steady



CLEAR SPRING - Thanks to the overall condition of the town's financial health, residents of Clear Spring will be spared any increases in water and sewer rates for 2001.

Patrick Kline of Kline and Company, CPAs, went over the town's audit Tuesday with the Clear Spring Mayor and Council.

Highlights of the audit include:

Dispose of trees behind C&C's Pub


CLEAR SPRING - Now that the holiday season has come and gone, residents of Clear Spring will be wondering what to do with their used Christmas trees.

At Tuesday's town meeting, it was decided to allow residents to dispose of their holiday trees in the parking lot behind C&C's Pub at 122 Cumberland St.

From there, the trees will be hauled away for proper disposal.

Officials suggest sand for sidewalks


Clear Spring residents are being asked to discontinue using salt to melt ice on the new sidewalks and bricks that were installed during the streetscape project.

Cat litter or sand can be used without damaging the new surfaces, town officials said.
